Earlier today (22nd February), we saw Daft Punk start to splutter back into life, provoking hopes they may be about to reverse their decision to split, a year ago to the day.
Sadly, that doesn’t appear to be the case. Instead, they’ve released a digital deluxe edition of their debut album ‘Homework’, featuring fifteen remixes. Nine of these have never been on streaming services before, with contributions from the likes of Masters At Work, DJ Sneak, Todd Terry, Motorbass, Slam, Ian Pooley, I:Cube, Roger Sanchez & Junior Sanchez, and more.
‘Homework’ and their live album ‘Alive ’97’, will also be getting a vinyl release on 15th April.
As well as the new edition, the duo have also shared video of their 17th December 1997 show at The Mayan in Los Angeles as a one-time-only stream. It’ll appear on their new Twitch channel at 2:22 Pacific Time today. I.e. right now. You can tune in here.
